Premieres Saturday, August 11 at 9 PM ET/PT on OWN
In the dramatic new season, life coach Iyanla Vanzant helps those who are struggling, guiding them toward a new way of living and encouraging them to do the work necessary for real change. Through emotional heart-to-heart conversations and often a dose of tough-love, Iyanla helps individuals confront unresolved issues that are causing turmoil. She coaches guests and gives them the tools to fix their own lives, seeking to break the negative patterns that are preventing true happiness.
In the season premiere, Neffeteria "Neffe" Pugh and Shelby "Soullow" Lowery return to Iyanla for a second attempt to heal their broken marriage, but an explosive argument between the two pushes Iyanla to walk out on her guests for the first time ever.
In the new seasons second episode on August 18, Iyanla works with an oblivious Nakeda, who has six children by five different men, and her mother Illysha is raising five of them. When a childhood trauma is revealed, Iyanla lays Nakeda’s reckless behavior at her equally oblivious mother’s feet.
Then in episode 3 on August 25, Iyanla works with Keshia, who finds out her dying son has molested her youngest daughter. Keshia has responded by shutting down emotionally. Now, years later, Iyanla is here to shake the family up with real talk.
